In principle I would be fine with this. The only benefit of loop is that it can
in theory be gapless, but I would really rather have a solution where one can
achieve gapless playback between different resources rather than just within a
single one. With adaptive streaming the low-level plumbing to be able to do
that will have to exist anyway.

However, there are games that use looping audio for background music, so I also
don't really mind keeping loop for the simple cases and just making it not work
for the complex cases.
